Current, relevant and inspiring, this course offers you an exciting opportunity to study the political dimensions of life around the world, recognising the connections between people, locales, ideas and problems. How do states interact with one another and what implications does this have for individuals? Should we be concerned primarily with our own well-being or do we have duties and responsibilities beyond our own borders? Does democracy still work for us or are there other ways of expressing our voice and finding solutions for shared problems? At the heart of the course is the belief that individuals can make a difference and effect positive change in the world. Taking an integrated approach to academic theory and applying it to real world problems, this course will provide you with the tools to make a difference in your personal and professional life.
